Badaun gang-rape: CBI ready to take over probe
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will soon take over the probe in the Badaun rape-and-murder case after the agency on Tuesday received a request from the Uttar Pradesh government, and is waiting for a formal notification from the department of personnel and training (DoPT).

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will soon take over the probe in the Badaun rape-and-murder case after the agency on Tuesday received a request from the Uttar Pradesh government, and is waiting for a formal notification from the department of personnel and training (DoPT).

Highly placed sources said the CBI has expressed its willingness to take over the probe in the alleged rape and murder of two teenage girls in Badaun district, which triggered nation-wide outrage.

The sources said the matter will now go to the DoPT, which will issue a formal notification in this regard, after which the CBI will take over the cases registered by Uttar Pradesh police, and start its inquiry.

They said the case will be probed by the unit based in Delhi to avoid any allegation of favours and pressures from local administration. The police had registered a case against seven accused, of whom five—three brothers Pappu Yadav, Awadhesh Yadav and Urvesh Yadav and police constables Chhatrapal Yadav and Sarvesh Yadav—have been arrested in the case.

The two teenage girls, cousins aged 14 and 15 years, were allegedly gang-raped and murdered, with their bodies found hanging from a mango tree a day after they went missing on 27 May, in a village in the Ushait area of Badaun.

In a fresh twist to the case, Uttar Pradesh director general of police AL Banerjee had recently claimed that according to available inputs, the rape of one of the victims was not confirmed and that property could be one of the motives.
